Cambridge Science Centre

The Jesus Lane site is currently closed and will reopen in 2017.

In the meantime, we will be delivering a range of pop up events and offering science outreach to schools around Cambridgeshire and beyond. Keep an eye on our website, facebook and twitter for more details.

Get hands-on with some of the best science and technology from the city of Cambridge and around the world. Visit a space of exploration for adults and families packed with amazing interactive exhibits, lively shows and inspiring workshops.

Located in its new home right in the centre of Cambridge, the first interactive exhibition for the Cambridge Science Centre runs from February through July 2013. When you visit you’ll get to personally experience what it feels like to make scientific discoveries of your own, and you’ll get to see, hear and touch Cambridge science from the past, present and future.

See how Sir Isaac Newton revolutionized our understanding of light. Learn how your eye works, reveal DNA secrets of what makes you into you, create electricity with your own muscle power, and get a feel for what it really means to save electricity with low-energy light bulbs.

The Cambridge Science Centre has highly personable staff on-site who love to talk science, ready to answer your questions and help you explore. Just ask! The Centre will also be hosting current research from around Cambridge as ever changing parts of the exhibition space. It’s definitely worthwhile to come back and visit us again to find out what’s new each week!

Please check our website for more details on our event, show and workshop programme. Pre-booking for some events, shows and workshops also available through our website.
